Director: Joseph Strickland, Christopher Chaput
Tony Joe White took US radio by storm in the late 60s with his song Polk Salad Annie, later recorded by Elvis. White pioneered music he termed 'swamp rock', combining elements of blues, soul, rock and earthy, backwoods imagery with a deep, unmistakable Southern drawl. White virtually disappeared from American music during the 70s. In fact, one of his few strong fan bases continued to be Australia where he tours regularly, including Melbourne in February this year. Joseph Strickland's humorous documentary man-hunt goes in search of a lost legend and finally catches up with him fishing in a creek before playing at his son's frat party!
